Python: Accepts six numbers as input and sorts them in descending order

Python Basic - 1: Exercise-42 with Solution

Write a Python program that accepts six numbers as input and sorts them in descending order.

Input:
Input consists of six numbers n1, n2, n3, n4, n5, n6 (-100000 ≤ n1, n2, n3, n4, n5, n6 ≤ 100000). The six numbers are separated by a space.
Input six integers:
15 30 25 14 35 40
After sorting the said integers:
40 35 30 25 15 14

Visual Presentation:

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````# Print statement to prompt the user to input six integers
print("Input six integers:")

# Take user input, split it into a list of integers, and assign it to the variable 'nums'
nums = list(map(int, input().split()))

# Sort the list of integers in ascending order
nums.sort()

# Reverse the order of the sorted list to get descending order
nums.reverse()

# Print statement to indicate the result after sorting the integers
print("After sorting the said integers:")

# Unpack and print the sorted integers
print(*nums)
``````

Sample Output:

```Input six integers:
15 30 25 14 35 40
After sorting the said ntegers:
40 35 30 25 15 14
```

Explanation:

Here is a breakdown of the above Python code:

• The code starts by printing a message to prompt the user to input six integers.
• It then takes user input, splits it into a list of integers, and assigns it to the variable 'nums'.
• The list of integers (nums) is sorted in ascending order using the "sort()" method.
• The order of the sorted list is reversed using the "reverse()" method, resulting in descending order.
• Another print statement is used to indicate the result after sorting the integers.
• Finally, the sorted integers are unpacked and printed using the print(*nums) statement.
